So since I have never had a barley wine, and since KingbrianI's pumpkin ale turned out so well, I decided to give this one a shot.

The recipe came out very well, I ended up with just over 4 gallons at 1.095, but unfortunately, my yeast washing experiment failed miserably, and so I ended up pitching a single packet of US-05 into the wort. I did rehydrate the yeast, so hopefully it works out.

It kind of pained me to leave sugar in the mash tun, since the grain bill was this large, I decided to try to pull a small beer out of it as well. I added 3.5 gallons to the tun, and so ended up post boil with a 2.5 gallon 1.040 beer. It got .5 oz of styrian goldings (which was all I had) and a couple of cups of trub from my failed yeast washing experiment. I didn't add the sugar that went into the barley wine because I figured that it would be thin enough without that.

I'm hoping that if 'Son of Fireside' works out, it will help to keep my greasy mitts off of the main event for the 6 months it will take to finish!

Here is a picture of the second run.

I don't have access to beersmith right now but if you divide everything by how ever big the batch size is (like the 11 gallon recipe just above just divide everything by 11) that works. That is how I used to do it for all of my 1 gallon batches. Worked really good. Obviously you need to factor your efficiency and go from there.

This is a PM version I was playing with just sub out the Light DME with about 1.5 lbs of 2 row. Then add 4oz of sugar.

I bottled my batch that I brewed per post #35 (Wyeast 1028, Corn Sugar) after 2 months in secondary. It's a very smooth beer already for being 10.5% ABV. The smoke flavor is distinct, along with fruity contributions from the dark crystal malts.
